Introduction
With a background in Mechanical Engineering, I’m currently a PhD student in Industrial Engineering at the University of Florence. I have multidisciplinary experience in research projects aiming at the development of motorcycle safety technologies. My PhD focused on the Autonomous Emergency Braking system for motorcycles and its interaction with the rider.

Article
Autonomous Emergency Braking on Motorcycles (MAEB) was shown to be a promising technology to improve Powered-Two-Wheeler (PTW) user safety, deploying autonomously a braking action to reduce impact speed when pre-crash conditions are detected. The applicability of MAEB with effective working parameters still needs to be proved in real-world working...
Conference Paper
Research question: Pre-Crash Braking (PCB) is a promising technology currently under safety by providing automatic braking input and reducing impact speed in pre-crash conditions. However, the implementation of the PCB as a system that influences motorcycle control, remains controversial from the perspective of the users. This study, conducted with...
Article
Objective Safely negotiating curves with a powered-two-wheeler (PTW) requires a high level of skill, and a significant proportion of PTW crashes have a curve involvement. This study aimed to estimate the applicability, potential benefits and feasibility of novel Motorcycle Curve Assist (MCA). The system is designed to operate an emergency control o...
Article
Full-text available
The role of powered two-wheeler (PTW) transport from the perspective of a more sustainable mobility system is undermined by the associated high injury risk due to crashes. Motorcycle-based active safety systems promise to avoid or mitigate many of these crashes suffered by PTW riders. Despite this, most systems are still only in the prototype phase...
Article
Full-text available
Among the rider assistance systems for powered-two-wheelers (PTWs) that are currently in the developing stage, autonomous emergency braking (identified by the acronym MAEB - Motorcycle Autonomous Emergency Braking) was shown to be promising to significantly improve the safety of such vehicles. This system, which is already available on passenger ca...
Conference Paper
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a promising technology in the future of motorcycle safety, since it could be effective in reducing the consequences of crashes. To evaluate whether a personal experience of the intervention may influence the acceptance of such a system, an analysis of the results of a field study conducted in realistic pre-cras...
Article
Objective Recent field-tests on Motorcycle Autonomous Emergency Braking system (MAEB) showed that higher levels of deceleration to improve its effectiveness were feasible. However, the potential of MAEB in mitigating rider injuries is not well understood, particularly in scenarios where the efficacy of standard MAEB is limited because the rider is...
Article
Objective Motorcycle helmets are the most common and effective protective device to reduce head injuries and mortality in crashes among powered two-wheeler riders. Even if they are globally recognized as effective, there are still concerns regarding their correct use, which is necessary to achieve maximum head protection. The goal of this systemati...
Article
Objective Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a promising technology for crash avoidance or pre-crash impact speed reduction through the automatic application of braking force. Implementation of AEB technology on motorcycles (MAEB) is still problematic as its interaction with the rider may compromise the safety. In previous studies, MAEB interven...
Article
Full-text available
Motorcycle Autonomous Emergency Braking system (MAEB), is a technology that introduces also on Powered-Two-Wheelers (PTWs) the autonomous braking, which is able to apply autonomously a braking force to reduce impact speed in emergency situations. This system was shown to be possibly effective in reducing numbers of deaths and serious injuries resul...
Article
Full-text available
Motorcycle Autonomous Emergency Braking (MAEB) is a rider assistance that may soon play a role for the improved safety for Powered-Two-Wheeler users. Several studies were carried out to investigate the feasibility of automatic braking (AB) events. In a recent experiment, tests were conducted with volunteer participants to assess AB intervention und...
Article
Full-text available
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) was proved to be an effective and reliable technology in reducing serious consequences of road vehicles crashes. However, the feasibility in terms of end-users’ acceptability for the AEB for motorcycles (MAEB) still has to be evaluated. So far, only Automatic Braking (AB) activations in straight-line motion and de...
Conference Paper
Research question / Starting point for investigation: One of the emerging technologies in road vehicles safety is Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), which applies autonomously a braking force to reduce impact speed in pre-crash conditions. Some studies showed that motorcycle AEB (MAEB), could be very effective and reliable in reducing serious cons...
